Please Don't Pet the Bats! Vampire Pets (Funny Faces)
CHESTER IS A GHOULISH CAT
WITH A JET BLACK CAPE TO WEAR.
But then, all the residents living there, in what is clearly a vampire's lair, are ready for Halloween.
There's an ghostly owl named Ollie, there's Freaky Freddie, a toad who swims in a slime-filled cauldron, and of course some black bats who love to flap through any empty haunted house. And then there are Suzy and Sammy Spider, ready to spin webs to add atmosphere to your Halloween party.
Roger Priddy's new seasonal addition to his Funny Faces series. Funny Faces: Vampire Pets (Priddy Books, 2014), features a flocked cover and die-cut, moving googly eyes for his cover boy, Chester. But open this sturdy board book and the little reader finds those round black eyes staring back from the face of Ollie, and then Freddy the Frog in his black cauldron. Bats and spiders fill out the crew of this haunted cadre, all with that Here's lookin' at you charm. Rhymes describe the denizens of this haunted house where a spooky beat invites dancing feet. With just a touch of frightfulness and lots of inviting Halloween characters, this one is just right for the youngest ghosts and goblins.
